Little Mary’s Nigthly Dance


Shawdows dance across the floor as day becomes night….

Mama and Grandma fall fast alseep…

Little Mary rises from her bed…

Moonlight lights upon the floor…

Little Mary dances as she has done so many times before…

Twirling and twirling…

Gliding and gliding…

She dances across the dining room floor…

Not a sound does she make as the music plays on in her ears…

Over and over Mary dances again…

Twirling and gliding till the night has gone…

Sunrise comes and little Mary falls down…

Fast asleep upon her bed…

Introduction to Write Away Stacey Hello, my name is Stacey. I am a freelance writer/author. Though due to a lot of pain and surgeries I have just started writing again. I started writing when I was 9. Sketching since way back & painting since I was in my twenties. Since, due to my health I can no longer work as a nurse. Due to numerous injuries over the years related to car accidents & because of inadequate help and working conditions. I now live with my handicapped mom. It has been quite an adjustment being back in my childhood home with my mom; but we have made it work. We fight a lot but the closer I get to God the less I feel the need to fight with her. I used to garden and at one time I turned moms over grown outside living space into a work of art with roses, clematis and flowering trees. Unfortunately for me I can no longer work in the garden as it aggravates past injuries. Inside I have turned my living space into a creative person’s dream with a large desk and hutch, large bookcase’s filled with books, an easel/table, and a camera and tripod. I still draw and write but, as I said its been awhile. Now I have been looking through a large folder of my stories and see if I can salvage anything. Of course I have to finish this humongous task of wrting a long and detailed letter to the Social Security Judges explain why I should be approved for Social Security. I have been trying since 2012 to get it but, it just been one problem after another. However, this time I have faith that God will lead me this time. Stacey

One thought on “Little Mary’s Nigthly Dance”

  1. I wrote Little Mary’s Nightly Dance during the divorce to my children’s dad in 1992. I have since revised it but most of the original remains. It was during this time I wrote over 100 poems unfortunately I have lost a great many over the years. Mary in this poem is actually me and it is about a time in my life where I felt life was full of love, magic and innocence. I did actually get up in the middle of the night when I was 5 or 6 and dance in the moonlight from the dining room window and pretend the shadows were all friends watching me dance. Unfortunately, the dancing ended abrubtly when soon after I was awakened one night by a crazy neighbor at my window. My home no longer felt safe and innocent anymore after that.
